Xenia Wachira, the Country Manager of BrighterMonday Uganda, expressed pride in the partnership with the Federation of Uganda Employers, highlighting the expansion into impact projects. These projects aim to address labor market challenges, particularly in terms of skill development and reskilling, especially in the era of artificial intelligence and digital advancements.
